Deep in the middle of summer, you’ll find honeybees hard at work pollinating wild cranberry plants, transforming their beautiful white flowers into small green berries. As autumn rolls in, these berries mature into plump red cranberries, vibrant in both color and flavor.

With cranberries sprouting wildly in New England, we grabbed our rakes and sought out the perfect ingredient to bring balance to our Beet Root vodka.

Only 15 minutes outside of town is a cranberry bog where we hand picked the very cranberries that go straight into our spirits. Here’s a look at our plentiful forage.

Just a few months ago we sealed our 11th batch of apple brandy and set it to rest in the barrel house. As years go by this crisp, clear spirit will take on the characteristics of it’s oak cask and transform into a warm well-rounded aged brandy. Luckily, with a growing appreciation of unaged spirits and a hint of impatience, we set aside a barrel of apple brandy to enjoy now. Our Tamworth Garden Eau De Vie is a sweet preview of what is yet to come from our barrel house. Distilled and fermented purely from local apple pomace, this Eau De Vie is truly a fresh picked taste of Autumn in New England.

Tamworth Garden Eau De Vie will do well to hold you over until our other aging batches transform into rich, complex brandies. This unique spirit is both crisp and warm, and lends a slight bite and sweetness to simple cocktails. We suggest treating it as you would any brandy or using it to build a Sweet Harvest cocktail by muddling seasonal fruits, sugar, citrus, and fragrant herbs.

We decided to celebrate our favorite fleeting autumnal fruit and mashed up a few ripe figs, but encourage you to experiment with whatever fruits you’d like.

Sweet Harvest

2 oz Eau De Vie

1/2 oz lemon juice

1/2 oz thyme simple syrup

1 fig, quartered

Muddle quartered fig & thyme simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice. Pour in Eau De Vie and lemon juice. Shake vigorously and double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a fresh sprig of thyme and a fig slice.


Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser is crafted from our house-made neutral grain spirit, infused with tamarind, lemon zest and golden brown sugar. Inspired by author Andrea Wulf’s newly-released book, The Invention of Nature, this complex cordial is an ode to Alexander Von Humboldt’s travels through South America. During his travels, Von Humboldt discovered that the locals made a ‘lemonade’ from the Tamarind fruit, which turned unsavory water into a refreshing libation.

Enjoy the fruits of Alexander Von Humboldt’s labor with a Tamarind Margarita.

1.5 oz Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser Tamarind Cordial
1.5 oz silver tequila
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
2 tbsp fresh orange juice

Rim the edge of a glass with kosher salt. Combine Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser Tamarind Cordial, tequila, lime, and orange juice in a tumbler with ice. Shake vigorously & strain into a glass. Garnish with a lime twist.

Only 500 bottles of Humboldt’s were distilled and only few remain at Tamworth Distilling and limited locations in New York State. Grab a bottle of this rare, unique spirit and share the story of Alexander Von Humboldt with every cocktail.
